I'm an active developer for LaTeX, most notably with the package siunitx for formatting numbers and units. In my day job I work as a chemist, and so you'll see I write a number of chemistry-related LaTeX packages. I'm also a member of the LaTeX3 Project, working on improving LaTeX with the eventual aim of producing LaTeX3. To keep people up to date with my TeX work and anything else TeX-related I see, I have a blog on TeX matters. I'm also keen on helping other TeX users, and so I try to watch the various places that people go for help. I'm also on the committee of the UK TeX Users' Group. So I pop up all over the TeX world!

For the avoidance of doubt, any code of mine that I publish on http://tex.stackexchange.com/ I hereby place in the public domain to the extent governable by law. Explicitly, I place it under the CC0

comment Expandable 'character scanning' command that preserves spaces
What is wanted for material inside a brace group is not clear. I've assumed that {foo} should end up as [foo], but it is easy to alter this to give [[f][o][o]] or similar if required.

I'd suggest you add \listfiles to your input and edit the resulting *File List* into the question.

comment Expandable 'character scanning' command that preserves spaces
Of course, if your input looks like foo bar with two spaces, TeX will convert to a single space before the code above gets to work. If you want to avoid that, you'll need to use a non-expandable route.

Feature requests for software are not something we can answer in a Q&A format. I've therefore closed this question, which would be best directed to the developers.

comment Using \end in internal vertical mode
@AhmedMusa Possibly, but if there is more than once group level then life gets extremely complicated. In that case, you'll need to insert code which will then check again on the group type, and insert \stop only when you are 'safe'.

comment Missing \scriptstyle and \scriptscriptstyle letters with libertine and newtxmath
This looks fixed in the latest release, using TL2012. That suggests this is a now-fixed bug.
